Research

Short bio

I am currently a researcher at Cisco Systems France, in the Paris Innovation and Research Lab (PIRL) , working in the Information Centric Networking project, with a focus on mobile wireless networks. I am a member of SystemX, working in the ARE project, through which I am affiliated with the LINCS laboratory.

Since 2014, I hold a PhD from Telecom ParisTech done jointly with Orange Labs; my work is about the modeling and evaluation of a flow-level traffic engineering proposal that breaks with traditional approaches for QoS.

Previously, I have been a research assistant in the Computer Laboratory of the University of Cambridge (2008-2009), a research engineer at UPMC Sorbonne Universites, affiliated with LIP6 and LINCS laboratories in Paris (2009-2014), and finally a postdoc at Telecom ParisTech, again with LINCS.

I have received a diploma in Computer Science Engineering from École Nationale Supérieure d'Informatique pour l'Industrie et l'Entreprise (ENSIIE) in 2004.

PhD

My PhD thesis fits in the Flow-Aware Networking proposal proposed by Jim Roberts around 2004, resulting for years of research on network performance modelling. It was a CIFRE thesis done jointly with Telecom ParisTech under the direction of Daniel Kofman, and Orange Labs under the direction of James Roberts.

More specifically, I have been working on a realization of such architecture in a Linux software router, Cross-Protect, and analyzed performance issues related to this realization: buffer sizing, flow-level implicit admission control, and interaction of fair queueing and transport protocols. Finally, I considered a declination of this flow-aware architecture in the access network.
